The juice is loose

It's rather annoying, I go to the supermarket and about 2/3rds of the "juice" they have for sale isn't pure juice, it's a little bit of juice mixed with water and sugar high fructose corn syrup.  Some brands are as low as 1% juice!

And even when you do find something that's 100% juice, chances are it's not 100% of the kind of juice on the front label.  Recently I saw a bottle of 100% "Pomegranate" juice, but according to the ingredients list, it's mostly apple or grape juice, pomegranates are third on the list.

Lately I've been trying to drink less soda and more fruit juice, but it's really difficult when the labels try so hard to be deceptive.  Although juice has about as many calories as soda, it also has vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, polyphenols and other important nutrients.  Since I have a bad habit of not eating as many vegetables as I should, I'm hoping a glass of apple juice a day will keep the doctor away.
